Jane’s Walk – May 7, 2016

This walk focused on both some of the vast history of Barton along with an introduction to some of the great businesses along the street today. We had over 20 participants come out and lots of interest.



The Halloween Event was a huge success with many families staying the entire night because they were having more fun there than trick or treating. A big thanks goes out to Y on Wheels for the amazing and very popular scavenger hunt, Value Village for the donations, the Hamilton Police (the Smart car was very popular) Little Monsters Face Painting (who was lined up all night).


The Zombie walk was a lot of fun and we passed many families on the street that had come out to watch and wave us on. A special thanks to the Action Team for escorting us and to Nickel Brook and The Butcher and The Vegan for their support and involvement.



The Barton Village BIA would like to warmly welcome you to the village. We are very excited for all the new stores and restaurants that have recently opened – there is certainly a buzz about Barton Village and it is wonderful to see.
